David Carson lives on a small family farm, near Tapawera in the Motueka River Valley.
He is a self-taught artist using materials sourced from his local environs. He processes with a minimal approach, trying to reduce the steps from raw material to finished work.
Born in 1968, Carson attended Tapawera Area School, Nayland College and University of Canterbury. He has exhibited throughout New Zealand and his work is included in collections nationally and abroad.
